Stacey Abrams Releases “Stacey’s Extraordinary Words” Children’s Book

With her recent announcement that she will once again lead the governor of Georgia, Stacey Abrams also had other news worth reporting: she released a children’s book.

Abrams took to Twitter yesterday to let her followers know about the release of Stacey’s Extraordinary Words.

According to the book’s publisher, HarperCollins, Stacey’s Extraordinary Words is about a little girl named Stacey “who loves words more than anything. She loves to read them, probe them and find comfort in them when the going is tough. “

Her teacher decides to get her to participate in a local spelling contest, but Stacey is more nervous than excited. Upon entering the spelling contest, “Stacey will learn what to win or lose. . . his words are powerful, and sometimes perseverance is the most important word of all.

In an interview today to Hello america, Abrams revealed that the teacher in the book is adapted from her elementary school teacher, Mrs. Blakeslee. Although she had not spoken to the teacher for 40 years, she “said thank you” and she appreciated “so much how nice she was to me”.

Three years ago, Abrams narrowly lost to the current governor Brian kemp amidst vote suppression rumors. She announced earlier this month that she would be doing a second run for the Governor’s Mansion.

Abrams went from being relatively unknown outside Georgia to being one of the most recognizable black women in politics outside of the vice president Kamala harris. After losing the 2018 gubernatorial race, Abrams launched Fair Fight, a group promoting fair elections across the country, encouraging voter participation in elections, and educating voters about elections and their voting rights.

The children’s book, which came out today, can be purchased here.
